Got up at 5:30 to chow down my usual pre race breakfast of half a bagel and strawberry cream cheese, Cari zombied out of bed a little while later and we hit the road to Williamstown. This was an important race for me, I've been training hard for it, going from 40km a week up to 55km a week over 5 weeks. It was worth it, I shaved 7 minutes off my 1/2 marathon time. I crossed the finish line in 1 hour 44 minutes 26 seconds. My goal for this race was to get around 1:45, so I was very happy with my time.
Home stretch! the last few hundred meters were on this beautifully soft track. It was a nice change after running 20km on concrete.
